Gosh, what a lovely review by Mummy Karma!
Yesterday I went to visit fantastic children’s wear company Grubbies at the Bubble children’s trade show in London. I was very excited to be getting my first glimpse of the new kerchiefs they asked me to design for next season. The last time I saw the designs was on my computer screen just before I hit send and now they are real! Here is a sneak peek:
Grubbies’ autumn/winter 2013 range features some rather special furry-on-the-inside dungerees as well as the two new kerchiefs Owl and Toadstools. I had a lot of fun designing these ones as they are based on woodland scenes (my favourite) with a lovely strong red and a mustard yellow as base colours.
A few weeks ago I decided to enter Ohh Deer’s Pillowfight competition. The brief was to design two cushion covers to no particular theme so I decided to employ my studio demon Raimon as well as his skating friend of indeterminate species to adorn the cushions. Now I have to wait and see if anyone likes my designs!
All the competition entries are up for sale for a limited amount of time on Ohh Deer’s competition page so have a look at the designs and see if there is anything you fancy. If you’d like one of my cushions you will find Raimon here and my little skating creature here:
These are some patterns I’ve been working on recently, I’m not quite sure what to do with them yet but I’m sure I’ll work it out. These little characters were all made using FW inks and scissors then scanned in and rearranged in the computer.
Grubbies is a rather fantastic new children’s wear company whose very first range of clothing I am proud to say features some Marion drawing! The minds behind the dungerees asked me to design two kerchiefs for their very first season and I was most happy to oblige. We worked away on ideas based around a wild west theme and came up with “Coyote” and Wild Horses”.
I am terribly proud of them and have been enjoying wearing them far too much….
Grubbies are great, if you’d like to know a bit more about them or buy some scarves or tiny dungerees then check out their website where you can do all those things: www.grubbies.co.uk
